“A wonderful stay in Essaouira”
Reviewed 29 November 2007

A very misleading entrance but what a beautiful surpise behind the doors! The staff are very friendly and welcoming staff, especially Christelle.

Our room was lovely, although it did not have a terrace which was fine as it rained very heavily that evening so would not have used it! The only problem was with the shower, there is no shower screen so the water sprays absolutely everywhere in the room if you are not extremely careful!

The roof terrace is lovely, gorgeous views and just a general relaxed feeling. The breakfast was lovely, served on the terrace in the sun.

A great break away from Marrakech, Madada Mogador and Essaouira as a whole was a refreshing trip!

  • Liked — The decor and general feel about the place
  • Disliked — The shower spraying everywhere!

We spent a week here, our second visit. The entrance is off-putting, giving no idea of the delights inside. We had the Madada suite again, with it's private balcony on the city ramparts overlooking the sea.
I think the best thing about this small hotel is the friendly atmosphere, the owners and their staff really could not be more helpful. The rooms are cool boutique style, kept spotlessly clean.
The good breakfast is served in the room or on the terrace when you like.
Dinner can be cooked by the staff and it is excellent. The owners have a share in the restaurant downstairs, which serves delicious food. I found the chairs there uncomfortable as I had backache and the hotel owner insisted that she took one of theirs downstairs.

The hotel will be extending a little, with four extra rooms and a spa. They hope to finish this in 18 months or so. It looked as though these rooms would have their own courtyard.

  • Liked — the friendly staff
  • Disliked — the lack of croissants at breakfast; i shall ask for some next time!

Definately one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in! Staff are friendly - hotel is spotlessly clean and the decor is modern and classy. The ambience is relaxing and the views from the terrace incredible. I will definately be back.

More boutique hotel than riad this place is very stylish and is a beautiful place to stay. The highlight for us was the terrace – our room (Salma) opened right out onto the large communal terrace where we took our breakfast every morning and watched the sun set every evening. My only reservation would be regarding the price – it is priced more on a European scale than a Moroccan one. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay but we were paying twice what we had paid elsewhere in Morocco for a similar standard - this is something to be aware of.

  • Liked — Comfortable room, great location, fabulous terrace
  • Disliked — Value for money not great

We found the Riad a perfect and great value for money. It was extremely relaxing away from the bussling streets. The rooms were just as we expected if not better. And the staff are so friend and extremely helpfull. Would recommend to anyone. Shame about the wind though - we had 1 day of wind during our 8 day stay! Still there were plent of other actibities to keep us busy...quad biking etc.
Thanks

Madada is beautifully designed, chic and friendly but for the price it does lack facilities that a larger hotel has - pool, open spaces etc. We stayed in a room that opened out to the lobby and didnt feel that we lacked privacy at all. Food in restaurant downstairs - After 5, is great if you are tired of Tagine and Cous Cous. Breakfast, Bed Linen, snacks and toilletries are all lovely
